about

Highlights just how unusual modern contemporary Brazilian music can be
4/5 ★★★★ THE TIMES

A great compilation . . . loads of really weird, offbeat stuff
GILLES PETERSON, BBC6 MUSIC

++++++++

A compilation of new leftfield pop, rock, folk, electronic, baile-funk, noise and experimental music from artists born or living in the ‘Cidade Maravilhosa (the Marvellous City)’, compiled by Chico Dub, curator of Rio de Janeiro’s acclaimed experimental music festival Novas Frequências.

“The aim is to showcase the best of the independent music scene from Rio: rock, noise, house, drone, new styles of baile funk, afrobeat, pop" said Chico: "We want to dispel the myth of a city dominated by easy listening bossa nova and show just how broad Rio's sound palette is”.

Disc one introduces artists such as Ava Rocha, Ricardo Dias Gomes, Negro Leo and Meia Banda who are creating national awareness of Rio’s lo-fi alternative scene, whilst B Negão, Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra and André Sampaio are at the forefront of a local Afro-influenced movement whilst veteran artists Elza Soares and Arto Lindsay bringing elements of these scenes into the Brazilian music mainstream.

On disc two Ceticências, Superficie and Erica Alves represent Rio’s evolving downbeat electronic scene whilst Leo Justi, Marginal Men and Woo create twisted new club sounds influenced by baile funk and Cadu Tenorio, Bemonio and Chelpa Ferro push local experimental music into unexpected directions limits.
